Toyota iRoad tiny three-wheeled car is the future for city living
CNN – The Toyota iRoad is like something from the future. It isn’t a car. It isn’t a motorbike. This three-wheeled, two-seater — driver and passenger sit in tandem — is being billed as an electric-powered “personal mobility vehicle”, and it reimagines how city dwellers could get around their urban environments.
With a 37-mile range, it’s the perfect run around, able to squeeze into tiny parking slots and weave through traffic, while reducing congestion and carbon emissions.
CNN’s Tokyo-based international correspondent Will Ripley took the iRoad for a spin. Here, he gives us the low-down on the five coolest things about the iRoad, first seen at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show.
The i-Road is tiny. Three feet wide and 7 feet long, it’s basically the size of a motorbike, but boasts the safety of a car.
At least two i-Roads can fit comfortably in a standard parking space. In a city like Tokyo with narrow, crowded streets, this small size gives you flexibility. It’s also easy to park.
